Much like people saying, “I’m vegetarian” or, “I’m vegan”, at the very opposite end of the meat-eating scale you’re likely to have heard more and more people say “I’m Paleo”.
Ruth from Let Her Eat Clean is no stranger to the Paleo lifestyle and here she shares her top recipe picks from Foodies100 bloggers who are also keen on this way of eating.
Over to Ruth…
If you’re Paleo, you’re someone following a Paleolithic diet and lifestyle. That is, eating as closely as possible to how our ancestors did.
It’s thought our ancestors ate pure, unadulterated fruits, vegetables, lean meats, seafood, eggs, nuts and seeds, healthy fats; nothing more, nothing less.
Paleo people are most certainly happy people and as well as reporting an all-round feeling of awesomeness, weight loss is a really common positive effect of following a Paleo diet.
Fancy giving it a go? Already a bit of a Paleo Pro? We’ve picked some of our Paleo favourites from the Foodies100.
If Paleo were a religion, it’s safe to say God would be bacon. The salty, crispy deliciousness of some rindless back features in many a Paleo breakfast. But how’s about this little gem of a Bacon & Guacamole side dish from Hungry Healthy Happy?
It’s not all about the meat as a Paleo eater mind you. Hunter-gatherers were big into fishing and there’s nothing like the omega 3 tastic injection you can get from salmon. This simple salmon dish from Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary is packed with so much Mediterranean flavour.
Ceri from Natural Kitchen Adventures basically confirms what any self-respecting caveman would do with access to a food processor and a roasting tin. Her recipes go above and beyond and are well suited to the seasoned Paleo eater looking for tonnes of flavour and adventurous ingredients. As a fellow Welsh blogger, it seemed only right to include her baaaaa-rilliant lamb dish. Ceri’s currently travelling in North American so you’ll also find a new series of traditionally US dishes with a bit of a British twist.
For the Paleo novice, it’s often breakfast that presents one of the biggest challenges. There’s a lot of effort involved in thinking outside the cereal box morning upon morning and when you’ve had your fill of scrambled eggs, Primal Britain’s Trail Mix will most certainly save you. Equally, even if I do say so myself, you’ll go quackers for this brunch dish with a twist over at my blog, Let Her Eat Clean.
